Did You Know?


The laptop given to Micah by his grandfather was purchased for the production of the show on eBay. It was worth approximately $1900 when it was new (which isn't far short of the $2000 stated by Micah's grandfather). However, AndoverCG Computer Liquidators, a company that provides specialized computer equipment for TV shows, bought it off eBay for $380. The laptop, in reality, does not actually work as it was sold for "parts." See more »

Mohinder Suresh: [narrating voice over] To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose. The Earth spins at a thousand miles an hour as we desperately try to keep from being thrown off. Like the first blush in winter, that signals a great migration. Was there any warning of their arrival? A sign, a single event that set this chain into motion? Was it a whisper in God's ear? Survive. Adapt. Escape. And if we could mark that single moment in time, that first hint of the prophecy of ...

Six Months Ago provides excellent background on our Heroes

Before I recap this weeks plot, I forgot to mention that Peter got arrested in the end. Now we begin with Hiro again appearing six months earlier at Charlie the waitress' birthday posing with her on camera. In this same time-line, Chandra, Mohinder's father is visiting a watch shop. The watchmaker tells him his watch is two minutes (or seconds) early. Chandra is actually looking for the watchmaker who we find is named Gabriel Gray. He wants to test him for whatever special powers he might have. In Las Vegas, Niki is in AA and is living with husband D.L. and son Micah. They visit her sister Jessica's grave which says she died in 1987. Her estranged father comes and gives Micah a present then gets angry when his grandson takes it apart. Niki's "Jessica" alter ego later seems to kill him as payback for all her abuse. In New York, Peter has just graduated from nursing school and has a party attended by Nathan and wife Heidi who is still walking here. Peter is reluctant about Nathan prosecuting their father in a mob trial. Later, Nathan is talking with Heidi about protecting his brother as he drives when they get rear-ended. Nathan flies upward while the car with his wife still in it hits a corner of an expressway causing her invalidity. At the waiting room, Peter agrees to help Nathan on the witness stand. Their father later dies. In Los Angeles, Matt pulls over Eden for speeding. Eden uses her powers to persuade Matt to let her go and eat doughnuts. A fellow cop catches him and tells him his detective exam is in an hour. Matt fails it and later reveals to his wife he has dyslexia. In Texas, Jackie makes Claire co-cheerleading captain after another girl quits. Claire doesn't really like Jackie but agrees to join. It's during a brief fight with Jackie that Claire discovers how her hand can heal quickly after being bloodied. Also during this time her dad meets Chandra and is told about Claire being special. Claire's dad also learns about Chandra's late daughter. Chandra hopes to meet Claire. Claire's dad, however, meets Eden, who he just found, and asks her to get Claire's name of Chandra's list. Chandra tests Gabriel and finds nothing. Gabriel gets angry and leaves. Before he does, while Chandra is in another room, he finds a name: Brian Davis with phone no. attached. Davis arrives at Gabriel's watch workplace and displays his telekinesis. Gabriel introduces himself as Gabriel Syler (after his watch's maker) and kills Davis intending to take his brain. During all this, Hiro tries to get back to the day before Charlie was killed but can't. So instead, he performs lots of magic to prove to Charlie he's from the future. Eventually, she falls for him and reveals she has a brain aneurysm. As they kiss, Hiro is suddenly transported to Japan with co-workers doing some stretching exercises. He then transports back to present time (and rides a bus) back to Ando. Unfortunately, Charlie is still dead...Wow, lots of backstory about almost everyone except Issac and Mohinder. Sweetest scenes were between Hiro and Charlie. Most intense were between Gabriel/Syler and Chandra. Well, actually that would be when Nathan flew up as the car with his wife bumped into an expressway bridge corner. Good background on everyone and I can't wait for next weeks fall finale before next January's new episodes...
